Wrasslin Wednesday is where I can wax nostalgic about Professional Wrestling in some way and this week I present: Billy Jack Haynes from WWF LJN WRESTLING SUPERSTARS !!!
One of the coolest figures from the line. Tattoos, hat accessory and one of the best poses out of all the figures.
Nice paint apps on the boots and tights !
I know, Billy Jack Haynes wasn't that good of a character in the WWF but I really like this figure. He has a perfect pose to simulate a lot of maneuvers. Billy Jack had a feud with Hercules right away when he came into my federation. Had to have the obligatory full nelson challenge. After that I turned him heel right away, maybe I affiliated him with the Horsemen , I don't remember. It didn't matter to me if the character was lame on TV, I could make a star out of anyone that could kick ass ! Headbands were lame though ....
I did take my original BJH and customized it into Hawk of the Road Warriors, so he was versatile.
And for your etification it is Billy Jerk Haynes...ReplyDelete
Yes, and if you look him up, he seems to fit that moniker !Delete
I thought you would have gotten that reference! Bobby Heenan called Haynes that right before the match at Wrestlemania 3.Delete
I did but I looked up his personal life and he seems to be a train wreck ! Looks like The Brain was right about him ...Delete
Never was BJH fan like you I found him uninteresting.ReplyDelete
I just like the figure, the wrestler was dull and him personally seems f'd up !Delete
Loved that figure back in the days!!!ReplyDelete
He's a real interesting figure, even if the actual wrestler was not ....Delete
